still hast higher numbers then sata drives. its fine for the basic things he is doing. No one will notice a difference in speed unless you are doing things relating to massive transfer of data
Yup still using both of these monitors. Love the Msi, great value pick for a 144hz, and g-sync compatibility runs fairly well on it. Convinced my sibling who got two and another friend who picked it up on sale.
yeah im familiar with the Canadian one. Well the intel 660p is their old drive, they wanna get rid of them and introduce the new ones with better specs. The best bang for your buck right now for 2tb is the intel 660p and the price already dipped alot of USD. The samsung 970 evo was around 577 but it dipped down to 500 a couple of weeks ago which was a good time to get. since its on par with the new intel 760p ssd which is around 439 as the intel iss almost as good as the samsung
yeah, but ive been watching the ssd market closely and it doesnt seem that the higher capacity ssd's will have a huge price change compared to the 128gb-500gb ones
huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh...... this is legit the best time to buy an ssd. thats prob one of the more important parts of the build.
Yeah, they released a cheap version (PC011 dynamic) for ATX mobos. So I hope they update their line with a cheap ITX version of the case you have!
thought they didn't sell that case anymore! Howd you get it?
looks almost as nice as my build ;)
Built this for a sibling that chose to spend that much on that chair. His reasoning was that he bought a cheap one from amazon for 250$ cad, and it was complete trash after a few months (i.e squeeking, creasing of leather, seat sinking). Since he is older he wanted something that was more firm, and better quality built. Also he wanted something that looked more professional than regular gaming chairs. And thats how he ended up with that chair.
Now for the monitor, he has also replaced the DELL, with a matching MSI one that he already has. This monitor is actually one of the best priced 144hz monitor for its features. (i.e thin bezels, 144hz, g sync compatible, crosshair, eyesaver mode, curved.)
found this monitor on sale, one of the cheapest g-sync monitors in canada. Its coming in a week. I have an msi 144hz, but I notices stuttering when Im doing fast builds in fortnite which feel like im lagging. but tested a friends g sync and its soo smooth. Had to jump on a g-sync one
No problem. So for the rgb lightstrip under the case you will need an rgb header on your motherboard. Most mobos Carry it now a days. The led strip is a 4 pin connector that connects to the rgb header on the mobo basically
Hey, Thanks!. The lights from my fans do not clash with the underglow lights at all! If it did I can control the brightness on my fans anyways. Honestly, for this case you only need 2 fans for my specs. 1 exhaust in the back and two intakes. Built this for my bro, and he just wanted another fan lol. (You may need this if you are running hot components.)
preforms well as any other Bronze 30+. Some times it makes a whining noise when gaming on demanding games. However you're in luck. because at CES 2019 last week INWin is gonna send out their 2nd generation A1 case with a Gold PSU, better wireless charging, and addressable RGB under glow on the case. If you are worried about the cpu. Some youtubers have videos on it.
waiting for computex hopefully for an updated case
ahah damn that sucks! Well if inwin doesnt help, Im sure you can you a heat gun to remove the mount pieces and use a hot glue gun to re-glue it the right way
something is seriously wrong with your glass window on your case. I have the same one, and the dotted lines should be on the right side not on the left side (looks weird). the only way I can imagine this happening is if you took off the mount pieces and re glued the window the other way around. Funky.
yeah I ended up with the gskill and they are amazing, literally zero hotspoting
Thanks! For the MSI monitor you do not need a vesa adapter for it. The vesa adapter is needed for my dell. However the only MSI monitor that needs a vesa adapter is their GEN 1 model which is MSI G24C
is the hostpotting of ram that bad on the leds?
is the hotspoting of leds on the ram that bad in real life?
cant find this case anywhere for sale, where you get it?
Hey, Thanks! I simply went to amazon and bought a roll of 3D Carbon Fiber Wrap vinyl and stuck it on my pc, as simple as that. You can buy it on ebay also and they come in different effects (4D,5D etc)
this is the exact one I bought
honeslty should have gone for a gtx 1080ti, better performance, and cost less lol
your fan configuration is pretty bad. the back fan needs to be flipped to exhaust air. And the main airflow fans (2 preferably) should be at the bottom side. Currently your air flow fan is not grabbing enough air, since there is thin space there. I suggest getting a cheaper but decent cpu cooler like Cryorig M9i, cause that tiny thing won't cool as good as others, plus it doesn't look like it is the right orientation, kinda wack looking.
just tryna help, see my build in this case for refference,
well the total says it right there 165$ thats def a console killer
thanks! Can't wait to check your build out. Yeah there is lots of room left fore bigger gpu's which is great. They show the dimensions on their website too
fun fact, there is no such thing as adobe (s)RGB. Its adobe rgb. You can easily find the monitor and all the details online
colour accuracy is very good at 110% sRGB. Contrast levels are good and, there are many settings to change that with other colour options.
All good, The bottom two are intakes, so as the one behind the PSU. The one close to the processor is an outtake.
are you a vampire?
Thats great to here, im sure it will turn out great,
So I got these fans, because it connects to one hub and I it’s has pwm, and other nice function. Since you are adding four fans you will probably need a hub, since most itx mobos won’t have more than 2-3 ish fan headers.
I mean for the best temps I would go with a liquid cool solution but I’m sure the dark 4 will be fine as well
Someone asked the same question yesterday, so go look at what I said! However yes 100% go for the blower style. And I suggested to the other guy to get a 120mm liquid closed loop cooling system like nzxt m22, or a deepcool captain to for the cpu.
Well it turned out great in the end:)
WOW, almost as nice as mine ;)
No problem glad I can help and can’t wait to see your build on here! :)
Thanks, I hope yours goes well!
1) I came back from a long month vacation and started building the next day i came back home. It took me from 9:30 Am to about 6 pm. However you can probably skim 2 hours off, since I had to go to the store to buy a sata/molex adapter since the PSU didnt have a molex one and some cables took forever to get in right. So for me some cables on the right side of the MOBO took forever. It is such a tight space there, I had a lot of trouble trying to plug in the RGB cable, and the set of cables such as the power led, power reset etc. Also the 24 pin wasn't clicking in to one side after 30 mins trying, and just pushed really hard and it went in lol. Took some breaks too cause I got frustrated at times ahah.
2) So with smaller cases, they have to displace less air, which is better for airflow. Both are good options. But If you are gaming at high fps, or doing lots of heavy work loads and obviously overclocking, I personally would go for a 120mm closed loop cooling solution. Imo, I would choose the NZXT or Deepcool versions. Or whatever offers the better temps. The newer ones improve on the mistake of others so I wouldn't be to fearful of leaks.
3) If you have a good cooling solution I don't think you will need to delid. Unless you want to go out of your way to get the lowest temps possible. However, I think you will be fine with a closed loop liquid cooling solution on it. For your gtx 1080ti, as long as you got a good airflow fan for intake underneath you will be fine.
Also a tip, I had to take off the PSU shroud to even try to plug stuff in on the MOBO, if not unscrewed its basically impossible. I probably should have removed the PSU to as it would have been easier. Also, I had to remove the Ram to fit the cables on the side to. Any other questions feel free to ask.
Thanks! taken all on the iphone X
There is no lights on without the rgb header plugged in. Its an rgb strip that connects to the motherboard essentially. So your motherboard should have one
Temps are pretty good. I run games at 100-144 fps, with two monitors and get 80 Celsius. While on light task (i.e google) i'll get around 42-45 Celsius. However, If I was just running my 1080p 60hz monitor, and not the 144hz moniter, I would get 30-32 Celsius
Ugh I don't think its that effective. Naw there is no loop of hot air, since the PSU is on the top, the hot air rises, and the fan is below sucking in cooler air, which is fed directly to the PSU fan, which is then exhausted. Its more of an aesthetic piece IMO, as my sibling wanted one cause they thought it would be better. However I rock 1 exhaust and 2 intake on my INWIN 301, and the INWIN A1 still has a bit better temps, due to the lest volume of air needed to be replaced
Yeah that what my mom tells me so it must be true right? Haha. Btw I think we broke the comment section cause I can’t even find our convo when I scroll through the list of other comments on my post :p
I Thinks I am part of the problem here, by commenting back to all the commenters lol
The first guy comment here, said he was just building in the A1, and the PSU was DOA, so im sure INWIN will send him another. Also it is pretty simple to take out if you wanted too
I wouldn't say its the best. Its your classic Bronze 80+ 600w PSU. However sometime it makes a whining noise when doing demanding task for a few minutes then its gone. I was also sketched out, cause inwin isnt known for making PSU's. However, my CX550m Corsair PSU sometimes made a whining noise, in the beginning, but slowly dissipated. The good thing about this PSU, is that it has custom smaller cables which helps soo much in cable management. If you are building a super high end PC, I suggest getting a SFX PSU, then get custom cables that are shorter in length. But all in all, it does the job!
Awww thanks :) it’s a great case
